Video Tutorial - Blending Photos into Backgrounds

This video tutorial just came out today in the Scrapgirls Newsletter. (Thank you Becca & Wendee) I hope you can get some good ideas from it, have some fun and maybe learn a little something along the way.   I opted not to read from a script so it would be more like us just sitting down together to show you something. This could be good or bad, but I hope you can work your way through it and forgive my ''Umms" and windows popping up...LOL I was a little nervous.

Well La Di Da!

Inspired by a photoshoot of the twins by Two Chics Photography (even before I saw the pictures), this bright, cheerful (& a little bit sassy) digital scrapbooking collection was born.

Lilly Puttin on her "Make-Ups" (as she calls it) I saw this darling romper on Etsy and had to have it for her. Her Mom saved it for her summer pictures. Of course you know I was thrilled!

Perfect for all year round, the La Di Da Collection is made up of a color palette of bright reds, tans, teals, greens and browns.  Torn and curled papers, fun florals and stripes, notebooks and pencils, detailed embossed papers, funky flowers and hearts as well as glitter and a very cute frog are a few among so many elements and papers included in this collection.
